I love the bright and colorful geometric style carried throughout the projects and the design of this book. Home includes a variety of modern projects and some old-fashioned favorites like God’s eyes, a rag rug, and a wooden bead trivet.
My favorite parts of this book are the photos of the author’s friends’ homes scattered throughout. Orpin encouraged them to preserve the natural, lived-in state of their homes by not tidying up for the shoot. Its a refreshing departure from the super styled homes often featured on design blogs and magazines.
I would like to try making the Color Blocked Chairs and the Bon Bons, tubes filled with confetti and treats often placed at holiday table settings.
Any of these 25 projects would be great to do with children. I know I would have flipped over this book as a kid, especially after seeing the page of stickers in the back.
